DeepSpaceNetworkSpeedCast International has agreed to provide support services for the satellite communications anchor station of Airbus‘ defense and space business under a six-year, multimillion dollar agreement.

The companies said Monday the deal covers maintenance, training, security and infrastructure management services for Airbus’ Skynet East anchor station that is located at SpeedCast's Adelaide, Australia-based teleport facility.

Pierre-Jean Beylier, SpeedCast CEO, said the company’s engineering teams offer 24/7  onsite management services in efforts to facilitate constant and secure communications for government customers in the Asia-Pacific region.

The agreement is a follow-on to the deal the two companies signed in August to design, build and manage the Skynet East anchor station.

Skynet East is a military communications satellite designed to provide global X-band and ultra-high-frequency coverage to nations that operate in the APAC region.

Earlier this month, SpeedCast announced a $425 million deal to acquire HarrisCapRock Communications business and the companies expect to close the transaction in the first quarter of calendar year 2017.
